The new Apple iPhone being trolled

23/09/2017 Leave a comment

As you probably know, Apple just launched two new iPhones recently. There was a lot of flack on this because they made one of them, the iPhone X, the most expensive iPhone to boot. So without going into details, I will just leave this here

Micro-usb to lightning cable adapter

11/08/2017 Leave a comment

I bought a couple of these micro USB to lightning adapters recently. The reason I did was twofold. For one, my wife has an iPhone and an iPad. These Apple lightning cables are not cheap and they tend to get spoilt pretty easily. So rather than shell out about $15 per cable (I jest you not. That is how much the cheapest some of them cost) when they get broken, I bought this adapter. In this way, I can use some of my micro USB cables to charge my wife’s iPad. Secondly, these things are small. I lost one of them recently and their small size made looking for them almost impossible. So I bought another one a few days back. The cost? $3.90. Ad that is a fraction of the price of those Apple cables. So do what I do…get one of these and use existing micro USB cables to charge iPads, iPhones ans what not. They work really well!

Ribena Sparkling Apple and Blackcurrant

Just the other day, I was feeling thirsty so I went to get myself a drink. I came across this drink and I thought to myself…why not. Let’s give it a try. Unfortunately, I regretted from the very first sip I tried. It is too sweet. So I abandoned it for good old mineral water and I felt much better. So bear in mind…this is a nice drink but in my opinion, it is too sweet.

The flimsy Apple Lightning iPhone charge cable

21/10/2016 Leave a comment

About a week ago, my wife was complaining that her iPhone was not charging. I asked her if her cable was OK. She admitted that her cable was slightly frayed. So I took a look at it and confirmed it…the plug near the Lightning side had :cracked” and the internal wiring was showing. That is what I have always hated about Apple and their cables…they break too easily and are very expensive to replace. The new cable is going to cost my wife about $20. So for now, she uses her iPad cable to charge her iPhone. Come on Apple. Can you guys at the very least forget about aesthetics and make a charging cable that lasts longer than this?

OS X 10.11 El Capitan upgrade for my MacBook Pro

11/09/2016 Leave a comment

I did the upgrade from OS X Mavericks a few days back and ran it through it’s paces. I am quite happy with how it is behaving so far and it looks pretty stable. I also upgrade Serato DJ to the latest version, which is 1.9.2 and so far, so good. I am not experiencing hiccups and the MacBook seems faster. So before OS X Sierra comes out, get your copy of El Capitan now guys!

Apple 12W USB Power Adapter

I have one of these very good Apple 12W USB Power Adapters in my arsenal of tools. This adapter comes in very helpful when it comes to charging my Xiaomi MiPad or my Xiaomi Battery Bank. One thing about this charger is that it is pretty good and fast charging and charges my devices very fast. I plug in my devices overnight and by the next morning, they are all full. These are useful. I might get another one as a spare

How to upgrade an SSD in MacBook Pro 13-inch

02/03/2016 Leave a comment

I get asked sometimes how to upgrade the SSD drive in a variety of MacBook Pro models and I came across this video. Always use OWC drives when replacing the SSDs. So far, OWC SSDs are the ones which are compatible with Apple Macs. This is a good video on how to do the relative easy upgrade.
